The cleanse doesn’t even come close to killing all of the yeast so I wouldn’t put too much emphasis in cleansing. Its all about long term results. I tell most forum members to plan on a 6-18 month recovery time to get over candida. The cleanse only lasts a short period of time. Changing your habits is most important in the long term.

I also think you are associating too many of your symptoms with candida and its more than this. You have other imbalances in the body such as nutritional ones as an example. Candida damages multiple organs, not just the brain, so in my opinion, the best approach is a holistic approach. A good naturopath can help you heal holistically properly.

There a many organs that are associated with mental health. There is a very strong gut-mind connection; if your gut feels bad, you feel bad and your head feels bad. For instance, there is a very strong relationship between headaches and inflammation of the gut. If you reduce the inflammation, you’ll reduce the headaches typically.

There is also a very strong relationship between the liver and the brain as well. If the liver is ailing at all, then you can get all sorts of mental conditions, etc. The liver and toxicity of the body are strongly related. If you are taking medication, this typically can impact how well your liver detoxifies the body according to multiple studies.

Check out this post I have about the liver:

If you suffer hormonal imbalances, smoking pot in my opinion may impact this negatively. It causes your body to release a lot of chemicals, adrenaline, dopamine, etc. It can drain the body. If you can cut back or take a break from it, you should notice that your body will recharge some from my experience.

Acupuncture may be something that could bring great benefit to you. You can go in feeling like crap and come out feeling like a million bucks. A lot of imbalances can be relieved just by doing acupuncture alone.

Hope this helps.
